Exploring Shakespeare: Climate change, weather and well-being

Aidan Moesby is an artist, curator and writer who joined the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust as artist in residence from 4-17 April 2022. Engaging with visitors in Shakespeare's Birthplace and on Henley Street Aidan explored climate change and well-being by thinking about weather, externally and internally, including where and how Shakespeare uses weather within his works. This research has informed a thought-provoking art installation at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and is another exciting addition to our Sustainable Shakespeare programme.
